(k)s. the republicans want to talk about whether you're better off today than you were four years ago. by the measure of a 401(k), somebody who is about to retire is looking at that saying you know what? the president inherited a terrible situation. my 401(k) has nearly doubled in the last four years. he said in his speech things had gone more slowly and been more difficult than he imagined. he showed humility and i thought he did a wonderful job of contextualizing it last night. and saying this isn't really a choice between mitt romney and barack obama, it's a choice between what kind of future we want to have as a country. what kind of economy we want to have. whether it's an economy that works for everybody or just the few and privileged and wealthy like mitt romney. i thought it was very effective. >> what about that? the idea and let's look at this objectively, you're not just playing this back and forth. if you have a president come in and the dow jones is down about 65, it's dropped dramatically, lower than it was for a decade and all of a sudden, it doubles doubles up to 13,00
for political office back in the '60s and '70s. to raising his own family years later. he's the "daily show" with an alternative tee-up to romney's big speech. >> this year the american people face a choice. between a self-made businessman. >> i know how extraordinarily difficult it is to build something from nothing. >> and a radical collectivist who says things like -- >> if you've got a business, you didn't build that. >> and this. >> i was not born -- >> in this country. >> and i am the leader -- >> of al qaeda. >> this is the story of mitt romney, a human being who built that. >> too close to the reality there. anyway, clearly a nod to some of the less than factual statements we heard in paul ryan's speech the night before. now to the flubs you may have missed. you wouldn't expect anyone at especially a speaker at the republican convention to call for more government, right? okay. marco rubio, time for your closeup. >> in the early years of this new century, we lived in an uncertain time. but we did not allow fear to cause us to abandon what made us special. we chose more government in
fdr in the 30s or ronald reagan in the '80s tend to remake the party around their own core of beliefs. mitt romney doesn't appear to have a core that you can build anything around. so as a result the republican party remakes him. and the republican party is dominated by this -- you call them a fringe, but it's a larger chunk than that, these kind of tea party folks. you have to adopt their world view. you have to blow the dog whistle constantly to reassure those people that you buy into that and that is what romney is doing. and we see what horrible trouble it's gotten him into with egypt and libya. >> the dismaying if not terrifying thing to watch is the way a lot of moderate white people, republicans and democrats say they don't hear the whistle. i noticed this week after the american deaths in libya the language of the other, portraying the president siding the the enemy. on tuesday reince priebus said obama sympathizes with the attackers in egypt. sad. earlier he restated. >> i also believe the administration was wrong to standby a statement sympathizing with those who have breach
